Ferne Dillard Strohl Pletchan, born in Allentown, Pennsylvania on June 22, 1927, went to be with her Lord and husband John (previously deceased) after receiving Last Rites on May 2, 2019. She is survived by her four children and their spouses, her grandchildren, great grandchildren, and her sisters. 

If you ever met Ferne, you instantly loved her outgoing personality and love of life. You knew she was a devoted Catholic, devoted to her Heavenly father. Ferne had a heart like none other and a beautiful contagious laugh. She was lovingly teased because wherever she was staying she immediately took over as recreational director; she taught many to play canasta and called BINGO like a professional. She was the mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, and friend who you felt honored to have in your world. She was loved immensely and will be missed even more so. 

For those who would like to honor Ferne and celebrate the amazing life and legacy she has left behind, the family is requesting in lieu of flowers, a mass for the repose of her soul or a contribution to the American Lung Association be made in her name.
